Kabir Poem About the Ascension of the Soul called: “Kar nainon didar mahal men piara hai”: “See Your Beloved Lord in the Temple of Your Own Body”, in Two Translations
This is a tremendously valuable poem attributed to Kabir (from the Dharam Das tradition of Kabir Panth), as it describes something of the interior voyage of the soul back to God, with references to the chakras, the yoga tradition, panch naam, inner regions beyond the physical or material plane (“Pinda Desh”), the astral (“Annda”) and other heavenly realms or dimensions, mystical Visions of Lights, and Sounds (“Anhad Shabd”), culminating with oneness with God (“Anami Purusha”). Generally, for those who are initiates of Inner Light and Sound Meditation and acquainted with the teaching of Guru Kabir, the Kabir Sagar/Anurag Sagar literature, bhajans of Sant Dariya Sahib, Sant Tulsi Sahib, Sant Radhasoami Sahib, etc..., this will seem familiar.
The first translation renders these thirty-two verses into somewhat of an archaic older English rhyming style. Scroll further down below for a more literal translation of the same poem.
